Until around 1992, the cassettes were rotated monthly. Then, they were replaced weekly. Finally...

Real facts about the circumstances of the case are included, but the author conflates Margaret Seddon with the American silent film actress of the same name. An...

From 1938 to 1969, the fictional crime novelist and detective Paul Temple, together with his "Fleet Street" journalist wife Steve, solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular series.
